Then dry all the ports real good and coat ’em with LSA. It doesn’t need any lubing except for the spring. Then dry it out good with a swab or rag or even your shirtail in a pinch.
Point the arrow to SAFE. You can do a good cleaning job, if you do it this-a-way — and do it every day. Your rifle can’t perform without it. The front end of the gas tube is self-cleaning, thanks to the hot gases and high pressure from the barrel.
Never load dented or dirty ammo. Now, when you come to lube-preserving, stick to the dope in the lube guide of this pamphlet.
While we’re gabbing about water, let’s hammer home the importance of keeping paj out of the lower receiver, too. Numbah 10 Thou’ in a combat situationl So, when you get your baby stripped for cleaning, like it paj in para in TM with Ch 1, take an extra 5 seconds to get at the port hole down there in 750-3 front end of the gas tube. Right, every time you clean your Ml6 — and every time you drain water from the bore — take an extra second to make sure the drain hole in the butt stock capscrew is open.

And still one more: This means holding your rifle ‘way up there and, if you can, keep the pouch with the spares above the water h’ne, Soon as you come out of the drink — if Charlie’s not interfering, natch — take the mags out and shake em good a couple of times to get rid of most of the water.
So it deserves reasonable treatment — especially in cleaning and lubing its lower receiver area. Here’s a slow motion of the proce- dure psm best make second nature: Make sure you get the metal end of the brush in all the way — right into the bot- tom of the hole where the gas tube is seated in the carrier key — and then turn it to loosen the crud.
This may not have anything directly to do with blowing up your shooter, but it could keep it from firing — which is the next worst thing. It doesn’t need any lubing except for the spring — and that only very lightly, with LSA. Slide the plate in this way, then press the spring down with your thumb.
Here’re a couple ways Maxie can shortstop trouble for you: Then use a pipe deoner or the like to poke the gook out of the pert. Just press the button on the 75-30 side of the rifle with the nose of a cartridge far enough so’s you can turn the catch on the left side of the weapon.

It does a better lubing job on working apm, espe- cially in a muggy-wet climate like Vietnam’s If she still won’t fire, do what your TM says on trouble-shooting. Ditto for all parts of the upper receiver assembly. Brackish water — that’s another story.
Your Prevention is the cure. Use the firing pin to release the receiver pivot pin. Don’t try to screw ’em together.
The bracket will handle either the M16A1 or the Mi4, though you may have to do a little maneuvering to get the M16 to fit the way you want it. And moke sure the floor plate goes under all 4 tabs, too. This bag, y’know, won’t excuse you from regular PM chores. Stick cortridge point in here to press the floor plate release.

Always — like Always! Here’s the easy way.
